Ok ladies, I started dieting more "severely" in the beginning of May. I have lost since then 21 lbs. Quite hard when you've been pushed in menopause by chemo and are taking AI's lol.
anyway, this is my diet:
bananas in the morning.
2-3 snacks during the day of either: a) 2 tbsp of ricotta, skim, one medium tomato, fresh basil finely chopped and 1 tsp of olive oil, with 1 slice of whole wheat bread or 2) 1 slice of whole wheat bread with a slice of lean turkey and a tomato or cucumber or 3) 1 cup of skim plain yogurt or 4) one cone of Slim Cow ice-cream (100 calories) I know, that's my only "gorging" but this heat wave is awful.
1 chicken breast (tenderloin) with stir-fried veggies (bell pepper, broccoli, cucumber, things like this) for dinner. I stir-fry the veggies in their own juices, same for the chicken, and sprinkle over them a tbsp of olive oil in the plate after they are done.
1/2 a honeydew or yellow mellon or cantaloupe (medium size) every evening or 3-4 cups of cubed watermelon
I do eat more "normally" one day a week (and in this is nothing deep-fried, breaded, or exceptionally fattening), as in maybe some grilled lean pork, oven fries made with PAM things like this.
I also use this website that has been a lot of help for calculating my daily calory intake:
DCIS, LCIS, ILC, IDC. Bilat (left proph) skin-sparing MX with Latissimus Dorsi Flap 500cc mentor silicone implants on 10/21/09, revised on 11/09 for seroma and infection (lost left nipple due to poor med. care). TC x 4, lvl I ALND, no rads
